  • The Fire Starter Sessions: A Soulful + Practical Guide to Creating Success on Your Own Terms

    • UNABRIDGED (7 hrs and 23 mins)
    • By Danielle LaPorte
    • Narrated By Danielle LaPorte
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    As the creator of - deemed "the best place online for kick-ass spirituality," Danielle LaPorte’s straight-talk life-and-livelihood sermons have inspired over one million people. Bold but empathetic, she reframes popular self-help and success concepts.

    Valarie says: "Loved idea but some of the "passion" was "cheesy""
    "A must read.....liberating!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Fire Starter Sessions to be better than the print version?

    Although I have not "read" the book, I think having the author recite the book is a huge reason why I love, love, love this book.

    What other book might you compare The Fire Starter Sessions to and why?

    Excuses Begone by Wayne Dyer, The Magic of Believing by Claude Bristol, and Start Something that Matters by Blake Mycoskie all come to mind. I received the same type of message from all of these books: Love, be kind, be true to yourself, find your passion, folllow your dreams,

    What does Danielle LaPorte bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Life...she brings life to the story. She is witty, to the point, honest, funny, bold and sarcastic all at the same time. She is a joy to listen to....very refreshing compared to some of the other narrators I listen to.

    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did have an extreme reaction to the book. I could not stop listening. I couldn't wait for the morning commute to arrive (this is when I listen to my audio books). It made me both laugh and cry. They crying however, was for the "aha!" moments that I experienced. Danielle is naturally funny, so, yes, laughing is definitely in order.

    What matters most to you? Should you focus on earning a living, pursuing your passions, or devoting yourself to the causes that inspire you? The surprising truth is that you don’t have to choose—and that you’ll find more success if you don’t. That’s the breakthrough message of the TOMS One for One movement. You don’t have to be rich to give back and you don’t have to retire to spend every day doing what you love. You can find profit, passion, and meaning all at once—right now.

    Thundersinspring says: "My eyes welled up several times!"
    "Very inspiration listen!"
    What made the experience of listening to Start Something That Matters the most enjoyable?

    I purchased this book after reading some other reviews. I was not disappointed at all! In fact, I have listened to it twice now. Blake's story made me want to go out and do

    Have you listened to any of Blake Mycoskie’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was the first time I listened to anything by Blake.

    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    That if you do something to better society, it would be well worth the time and effort...and could make you a healthy income as well.
